Regulation of the Wind Sector in Poland: Tasks of Municipalities in the Contex of Public Procurement
The wind sector is one of the sectors of the economy whose development influences environmental protection. It follows that wind, as a source of renewable energy, is one of the factors influencing growth in consumption of green energy when compared to the use of conventional energy. The generation of energy from renewable sources is one of the most important trends emerging in international environmental protection policy. At the European level, of importance are the postulates contained in the Europe 2020 Strategy, implemented by European Union Member States. This paper pointed out regulations of Polish law concerning the rules of building a wind power plant and pointed out specific rules concerning the sale of wind energy by the municipalities.
